The Liz I knew was about a year older than I and I was in high school at the time, so I don't think we're talking about the same person. I don't remember the names of any of those crew people or carnies or really any of the exhibits, either, but the fair was definitely the place to be way back then. I'm sure it still is.

well, if you were on the night clean-up crew anytime from 1977 on, chances are i saw you pushing a broom.
Some called my area the Mexican Village, I got stoned with lot's of you'z then. (i was NOT Security Eye Patrol though)
lot's of cool shows came thru the summer fair, the last being Tea Leaf Green in 2006

'77 was the last summer I worked. If you can remember any Anglo guys in their mid-teens w/one of them possibly even wearing a Skull & Roses shirt sweeping up the trash overnights, then guess who! We'd have to hang around the Cook Shack to pick up our pay, then we'd straggle out of the fairgrounds, sleep through the day, show back up at 11-11:30 the next night and do it again. Sometimes the mescaline was around to keep us going until daylight. What a life. Mexican Village rings a faint bell in the recesses of my memory.
